Top 4 Players Operating in the Indian Tyre Market

The Indian tyre market reached a volume of 182 Million Units in 2021. Tyres are essential ring-shaped automotive components manufactured using natural and synthetic rubber, carbon black, polyester, rayon, steel, silica, and vulcanization accelerator. They are typically inflated to cover or protect the rim of wheels while providing a flexible cushion for absorbing shocks. They provide traction between the vehicle and the road, transmit accelerating and braking forces to the ground, help maintain or change the direction, and transfer the vehicle load to the surface. As a result, tyre are widely used to improve the overall performance of automobiles and enhance the driving experience. 

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top companies in the Indian tyre industry are focusing on expanding their production capacity to gain a competitive edge in the Indian market. They are also making heavy investments in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce innovative product variants, such as ecological and airless tyres. Apart from this, several leading players are developing smart tyres embedded with the Internet of Things (IoT)-based sensors to provide real-time information about the conditions of the tyre, such as air leak detection, tyre performance, and vehicle location. They are also launching high-quality automobile tyres with enhanced sidewall puncture resistance, a high-design cushion to minimize road shocks, improved durability, and better reliability. Other factors like rising environmental awareness among individuals and increasing initiatives undertaken by the Government of India to minimize pollution levels are anticipated to escalate the demand for electric vehicles (EV) in the country and impel the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach 221.8 Million Units by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 3.59% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
